PennFuture responds to Gov. Wolf's veto of SB 790

PennFuture issued the following statement after Gov. Wolf vetoed Senate Bill 790: 

"We are thankful that Gov. Wolf has heeded calls to veto Senate Bill 790, which would have loosened environmental regulations currently governing the conventional oil and gas industry​," said PennFuture President and CEO Jacquelyn Bonomo. "There is no good time to weaken or eliminate rules and regulations that keep us safe from polluters, but a global pandemic is precisely the wrong time. We are hopeful that a new session of the General Assembly will bring about new efforts to protect and conserve our natural resources, and that Gov. Wolf will not have to use his veto power to stop bad bills that are nothing more than gifts to the fossil fuel industry."
